Rachel Helen Designs is now one of a select few UK jewellery makers to offer customers the option of choosing fairly sourced gold.

Those looking for a more ethical alternative to conventional gold for their wedding rings will have the option to choose Faritrade & Fairmined ecological gold.

The Briar Rose collection, which was launched at Eunique exhibition in Germany in May, is a selection of limited edition wedding and engagement rings that can be set with any stone and made with a variety of precious metals including 18ct Fairtrade & Fairmined ecological gold.

Rachel received a great response from visitors to the annual arts and craft fair, Eunique, and picked up a number of excellent commission opportunities.

“The exhibition was a great platform to launch the Briar Rose collection, it gave me an opportunity to get in front of the right people and tell them about how the gold is sourced. It’s a real positive for me to be able to offer fairtrade and fairmined materials, ethical sourcing is something I’m really passionate about.”

The collection is made up of four engagement rings and two fitted shaped wedding rings to match. Each design emulates the naturalistic style that Rachel Helen is known for and each piece has a story to tell.
